The maidens of Jerusalem Are the fairest in the world Barefooted, lightly garbed With a crown full of curls When they walk, they dance When they talk, they sing When they smile, romance When they cry, all cry Carefree, yet concerned Virgins with experience Mothers, lovers, wives Children all their lives The maidens of Jerusalem Are the fairest in the world
Just as I was
motivated to a start my blog www.oracleofny.com
to keep in touch with the hundreds of people from around the world who
contacted me by email and telephone with words of encouragement and job leads
after my sign board publicity initially went viral, I was motivated to write a
book after I eventually landed a job and hundreds more people contacted me
proclaiming I was an inspiration and seeking job hunting advice.
During the cold,
lonely winter nights and on weekends, while my wife and children were in Omaha and I was working at an accounting firm in NYC,
I started writing Experienced MIT Grad For Hire based on my personal
experience and career coach Paloma Bowland’s transformational advice.
I wanted to share my
inspirational story and give encouragement to the many people who gave me
encouragement when I needed it most — during my long stretch of unemployment. I
wanted to reach out to people all over the world with words of help and hope.
Even a year and a
half after my photograph and story first went public, they continued to
circulate the globe — and even a year after I started working again, many
people asked for the details of my inspirational act, unique job search, what I
learned and where it had taken me.
I realized that I
enjoy — and am good at — helping others, so I decided to share the tools
I learned from my experience — to inspire people to think and act in new
ways to land a job.
Anyone who is
looking for a job or who could use a bit of personal inspiration may be
interested in my informative tale of creativity, bravery, perseverance and
practical job hunting advice.
An experimental childrens’ book/novella about young Joshua’s journey to Sarujalem (Jerusalem).
Joshua passes through the Gate of Imagination where he encounters the Grimpil Pilgrims on their annual Grimpilmage to Sarujalem, Absalom the Prophet and Queen Ursula — and then helps defend the city against the evil Assassins.
Asher Eder grew up as a Christian in Nazi Germany, was forced to join the Hitler Youth and eventually became a Luftwaffe fighter pilot.
After the war, he went on a spiritual journey which led him overland through Afghanistan and Pakistan to India — and eventually to Israel where he converted to Judaism, married a holocaust survivor and became a tour guide.
Asher’s spiritual and intellectual journey exposes some of the fallacies and shortcomings of Christianity, Islam and Buddhism - and leads him to become a Jew.
